On a journey through this ancient town, local historian Peter Christie tells these forgotten or untold tales. From its chapels, churches and graveyards to its former patrons and men of industry, Bideford is revealed to be a town of historic importance. You may think that you know Bideford, but take another look around and you will find more than you could possibly imagine.
